Proper wine preservation ensures your wine will retain its color, flavor and nuances as it sits on the shelf. The best wine storage temperature is between 55 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

The most common way to ensure the constant temperature of your stored wine is through the use of a wine room cooler. A wine room cooler is a dedicated unit that keeps your wine room temperature at a consistent level. No matter what size cooler you need to keep the ideal wine room temperature, there are many cooling options available to fit your needs. To get the right wine room cooling system to match the size of your wine room and your climate, sketch out your entire wine room before you begin construction.
